Grilled Margarita Chicken Kabobs Recipe

OK, so I’m at it again. This recipe has everyone in the family taking sides. There are those of us (the oldest son and me) that really like the flavor tones that this Grilled Margarita Chicken has and then the rest of the family have their own opinions.

I loosely based this recipe on one that Liz found on Tasty Kitchen, it called for Tequila and Triple Sec in the recipe and since we didn’t have either of these on hand and not wanting to go to the expense of purchasing just for this recipe we wracked our brains and came up with this.

Grilled Margarita Chicken Kabobs

Using a Margarita Mix made the marinade for this recipe extremely easy to put together, so easy that probably anyone could do it… even kids for Mother’s Day. Just make sure there is an adult to supervise with any chopping that is done.

Liz says…While I wasn’t crazy about the flavor, it wasn’t terrible.

Doug says… I really love the lime flavor the Margarita mix added and it was easy to put together. Next time I think I’ll add another pepper to the marinade for a little more kick.

For a complete meal pair it with some Pico de Gallo and rice pilaf, it really brings out all the flavors. Give it a try I’d love to hear what you think.
